Wayne Rooney sends message to new Man United boss Jose Mourinho

Wayne Rooney says he is open to extending his contract at Manchester United

Wayne Rooney has told Jose Mourinho that he is keen to finish his career at Manchester United.

The Portuguese coach is currently preparing for his first season in charge at Old Trafford after being appointed as the club’s new manager on a three-year contract last month.

Mourinho has already set about revamping his squad at Old Trafford by securing the signing of defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal earlier in the month.

Rooney is the highest paid player at United and has three years left on his current deal at Old Trafford.

And the England captain has insisted that he would be open to extending his deal with the Red Devils and end his career at Old Trafford.

Rooney- currently on England duty at Euro 2016 – is quoted as saying by Metro: “I have a contract at the club that I want to see out and wouldn’t be against extending it — but that’s up to the club.

“All players’ games develop and change over time — look at Giggsy towards the end of his career compared to the beginning. What I can say is I will continue to develop my game and adapt and improve throughout.

“Over time and with experience, you see the game and experience the game differently, which leads to different decisions.”
